Poll: Do you have health insurance?
As another company enters the Irish health insurance market, we’re asking: do you have insurance?

A NEW INSURANCE company has announced plans to introduce three core healthcare plans to the Irish market.

GloHealth is now the fourth company in the health insurance market in Ireland.

The Health Insurance Authority released a report in late May which said that up to 1,000 people a week are dropping their private health insurance policies in order to cut back on their expenses.

The organisation says an estimated 75,000 people are expected to have dropped their policies between July 2011 and December 2012.

Today we’re asking: do you currently have health insurance?
